Makes 2 to 4 servings



skinless, boneless chicken breasts
2 tsp
1/4 tsp
1/4 tsp
freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup
dry white wine, or apple juice
2 tbsp
1/3 cup
chopped fresh dill, or 1 tsp dried dill


  • Trim any fat from chicken. Melt butter in a large frying pan set over medium-high heat. When bubbly, add chicken. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook until golden brown, from 2 to 3 minutes per side.
  • Pour wine and maple syrup into pan around chicken. Using a wooden spoon, scrape up any brown bits from bottom of pan. Cover and reduce heat to medium-low. Continue to cook chicken, turning halfway through, until it feels springy when pressed, from 8 to 10 more minutes. Remove chicken to a serving platter. Cover with a tent of foil to keep warm. Stir dill into sauce in pan. Increase heat to medium-high and boil sauce, stirring constantly, until it thickens slightly, from 2 to 3 minutes. Pour sauce over chicken and serve immediately. Delicious with green beans and mashed potatoes.

Maple syrup and flecks of dill lend a sweet but fresh touch to this quick, sautéed chicken dinner.
